Desktop App and Connection Pools

Anyone ever use a Connection Pool for desktop applications? I typically just use one open connection throughout the lifetime of the application but wondered if I should be doing things differently.

If the app only ever requires one connection, what would be the value of a pool? A connection pool is useful (essential?) to improve performance at the server-side in an application that supports multiple clients. I suppose it also depends on how DB intensive your app is.
